Bird Key has a vibrant history, dating back to 1917 when the very first home was built. Like many areas and islands in the area, John Ringling purchased this island just a few years later and started building it up to what it eventually is today.
Situated in the heart of Sarasota Bay, this breathtaking 250 acre Key is the hottest, most exclusive community in the entire County. Nestled right off the John Ringling Causeway bridge, Bird key is perfectly located with easy access to downtown Sarasota, and Lido Beach—a popular family friendly beach area that houses the famous St. Armand’s Circle. The key is decorated with hundreds of single-family homes that are awe-inspiring to locals and tourists alike. In fact, over half of the 500 homes on Bird Key are situated directly on the Bay or canals. Not only this, but the island gifts its residents with certain amenities such as its very own tennis courts, yacht Club, and community center.
If you’re looking for the most pristine island in Southwest Florida, this is the place for you. Bird Key is a place where you can see a remarkable Florida sunset overlooking the west side of the island, while catching a jaw-dropping skyline in downtown Sarasota to the East. Bird Key is within 5 minutes from the gorgeous Marie Selby Botanical gardens, St. Armand’s Circle, Van Wenzel Performance Arts Center, and the world-famous Mote Aquarium.
